Which is why I have no interest in fishing Duke's. The fishing is certainly challenging (God knows those fish have seen every fly in the book at this point), but catching a pellet fed fish still seems a bit fake to me.

I'm just looking for fish in the >16" range and it seems as though Dukes, Soque, Hooch, and Toccoa may be the only rivers who have a decent population of this size in GA. I'm assuming the Chatooga is a wading only river. It sounds interesting though.
If a 16'' average is your goal, then the tail waters of East Tennessee should be your destinations. The Watauga, South Holston, Clinch, and Hiwassee Rivers all produce fish that are on average 14-16'', and you can slay them on dries year round if the conditions are right. FYI: from Atlanta to the Hiwassee is only a 3 hour trip!
